Giveaway Week Day 1: Allora Handmade

Today I’m kicking off this:

With this:

Have you heard of Allora Handmade? (Of course you have!) I’ve seen her beautiful rosettes on blogs before – we seem to have a few overlapping friends in the online world – but after meeting Jessica in person at The Creative Connection I was BEYOND desperate for one of her gorgeous necklaces.

I told her I was asking E to buy me one for Christmas.

And then I went ahead and bought one anyway.

So when you buy me my Christmas present E, don't get blue. I like yellow & pink.

She calls this the "modern pearl rosette statement necklace". I just call it MIIIIINE.

If that picture looks familiar it’s because it’s over there in my sidebar <———– I also made it my Twitter avatar and my Gravatar when commenting on other blogs, because like I told Jessica, her beautiful rosettes make my face look better. Shouldn’t that totally be her new tag line?

She also makes headbands (oh, did I mention I have one of those too?), earrings, bracelets and shoe clips in a huge variety of colors. I think I need one of each. In every color. I’m only half joking.

And today, because she is AWESOME, Jessica is giving one reader the chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Allora Handmade.

And today, because I like to keep things easy, all you have to do to win is visit her shop and leave a comment on this post telling me which color rosette is your favorite!

I also high suggest you read Jessica’s blog and follow her on Twitter but none of those are part of the giveaway today. And P.S. If you’re lucky enough to live near San Diego do you yourself a favor and check out The Queen Bee Market Jessica is organizing too. I’ll be sitting here in Connecticut freezing my butt of jealously.

Giveaway will be open until November 1st, winner will be chosen using and notified via email so make sure you use a real email address when commenting.

Giveaway is now closed!

P.S. If you don’t win but want to put some Allora rosettes on your Christmas List, make sure to get the order in before December 1st! Handmade means MADE BY HAND and we want Jessica’s poor tired fingers to get some rest this holiday.

Disclaimer bit: I purchased my Allora Handmade products with my own money. No compensation was received for this review besides the pleasure of getting to exchange funny emails with Jess. She’s providing this giveaway for you out of the kindness of her heart.

    It’s hard to choose because the colors are all so beautiful. But the mustard looks cute on her so I’ll go with mustard.

    I agree with you, the navy blue is divine!

  11. It’s a tough choice… I’d probably go with grey… or mustard… or the cream colored one… they’re all so pretty!

  12. Wow! these are gorgeous!! I noticed the necklace in your picture and loved it and wanted to ask you were you got it. She is gonna get so much business!!! :) I love the dusty rose colored one….or the off-white. I can’t decide. I’m gonna go explore her site and look for things that I can tell Mitch I HAVE to have, you know, cause of Photography. He loves that. It usually works though :) (Crap I hope he doesn’t read this!)

  13. Kim says:

    I’m pretty sure these will end up in Zoe’s mouth, but I”ll try to win one anyway because they are awesome. I like the turquoise, navy, and eggplant. If I win, I will have a very difficult decision to make!

  22. MKP says:

    The dusky rosie pink ones!! Swoon.

  23. I love the grey. (What no facebook entry? Heh)

  24. I thought- “How boring am I? I like the gray color the best.” Then I noticed the person before me likes the gray too. Not so boring after all!

  25. Ok so i like the rich red, gray, navy, mustard, off white, chocolate… shut up. i can’t just pick one.

  26. Britni says:

    Um… aqua. As if it was even a question.

    Also, I like how I was all, “Oh, a giveaway. Probs all baby stuff I have no need for.” AND THEN THERE’S THIS AWESOME NECKLACE.

    love the eggplant. & the mustard. oh, and the gray. i have issues. i want one of each. quite literally.

  28. Megan says:

    Gorgeous! Of course I love the moss green! The good thing about wanting everything in the same color is that everything matches. :)

  29. sarah says:

    oh… I think the chocolate brown is wonderful! I love everything fall related so pumpkin and brown make me happy!!!

  30. Megan says:

    I can’t express how much I LOVE Jessica & Allora Handmade! I own SEVERAL designs & have the pleasure of doing the Queen Bee Market with her! Currently, my favorite is the Cinnamon Headband!

  48. I would love one of her Rosette Necklaces…loving mustard right now! She is crazy talented and I adore her!

  49. merin says:

    I’m loving the moss green for a headband-but what I think would be great is one big or two small rosettes on a thick hair rubber band or clip. I have yet to find a headband that is comfortable and/or fits on my weirdly shaped head!

  50. Jen F (from Robinson) says:

    I’m going to jump on the eggplant or turquoise bus. Yum.
